Overview

Accounted For is a collection of lyrical poems told by a multi-faceted persona responsible for discovering the meaning of individual integrity, regardless of the apparent self’s impermanent nature. Many poems reveal encounters with other selves, mirrored selves, intimated, drawn, or fully detailed; each revealing a concern for or view into the illusion of time as it plays out in both the personal and social spheres. Prayer, dreams, invocations, meditations suggest relationship with the Unseen that sometimes bestows images that breach our natural world, our natural selves. Occasionally, the speaker will reveal its single self, or even a fractured self as the drama or circumstances in the poems require. The multi-layered or deconstructed self might manage varying perspectives, arrive at a temporary freedom from what binds it, achieve leverage, but when faith in a whole self’s seed is present, she finds by turns, a depth to her vision, openness to a life and death mystery.
